Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A tale of a gerbil's great adventure, perfect for fans of the Humphrey series!

Life is good for Obi the gerbil. That is, until her owner goes on vacation and leaves the pets home alone! A neighbor boy comes to feed the other animals but never notices poor Obi. So the resourceful gerbil takes on the courage of her namesake (the famous Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi) and breaks out of her cage in search of food and water. Once she's on the loose, Obi faces dangerous cats, a maniacal tarantula, an insecure snake, a grumpy mouse, and a slobbering old dog. But she just might make some friends, too, in this hilarious and fun novel about a little rodent on a big adventure.

Synopsis:

Obi the Gerbil is home alone Obi's owner is on vacation, and the neighbor feeding the pets has forgotten all about the gerbil tucked away in her cage. Obi loves her cozy home, but without food and water she must escape to survive. So, taking on the courage of her namesake (Star Wars Jedi knight Obi-Wan), she breaks out and meets her fellow pets-cats up to no good, a maniacal tarantula, an insecure snake, a grumpy mouse, and a crotchety dog. Obi finds danger, but also makes new friends as she embarks on her great adventure. This hilarious novel about perseverance and pluck is enhanced with funny cartoon illustrations.
